DJI showed a new generation of Osmo Action action camera, which is very significantly different from its predecessor. The company decided to abandon the modular design of Action 2 and return to the concept of the original Osmo Action.
The novelty received a 1/1.7″ sensor with the ability to shoot 4K/120fps and a viewing angle of 155 degrees. In the photo mode, you can take 12 MP photos. The proprietary RockSteady 3.0 stabilization system can work at 4K/120fps, and the HorizonSteady function fixes the horizon when the camera rotates at 360 degrees DJI claims the Extreme battery can withstand temperatures down to -20° C, while still being able to shoot up to 160 minutes of video, and fast charging allows you to charge the battery to 80% in 18 minutes.
For Osmo Action 3, they developed a protective case with a quick attachment system, both in horizontal and vertical modes. The camera has two touch displays (2.25″ / 640×360 – main screen and 1.4″ / 320×320 – front), which provide access to settings and various operating modes. Three microphones are provided for sound recording, but if they are not enough, you can connect an external microphone via USB-C or 3.5 mm audio jack. With the camera, you can dive under water to a depth of 16 meters.
The cost of DJI Osmo Action 3 is $329. The Standard Combo kit includes the camera, one Extreme battery, a protective case with the possibility of horizontal and vertical mounting, a mount for quick mounting and an adhesive base. For $439, you can purchase the Adventure Combo Kit, which includes additional Extreme batteries, a battery case, a 1.5-meter holder, and other accessories.
